We stand at the beginning of a new era. The technology we that we use in our personal lives is turning what was once science fiction, into a reality. Yet many firms are not preparing for the change.

Hear from Wiremu Adds, Senior Systems Consultant at Deltek as he will draws on insights from industry research and How Deltek Solutions can help improve project delivery and prepare your business for years to come.
